Speaking with the Gods Every day

After your statues has been consecrated, they’re LIVE and they don’t seem to be only a “statue” anymore. There’s a god inside, and the statue is the BODY of the god (not the house), the altar is the house for the god. Don’t simply go to your altar each day and burn incense blindly, be sure you talk with them, and deal with them as an actual human being who’s above you.

If you burn incense within the morning/night, it is best to take a look at the altar and name out the god’s identify in your coronary heart, then bow and greet, like saying good morning and such. You may also speak to them, carry your incense as much as the brow stage and shut your eyes, speak like a human being, and the gods will get your message.

One greatest drawback with “Taoism” in China for most individuals is that the language barrier is extraordinarily disastrous. Not solely that it’s largely tremendous “historic” by way of the phrases and grammar, but additionally there are lots of issues made up that’s to “please the king” greater than constructing the communication with the gods (or else your faith can not survive in historical past). In case you are a non-Chinese language and also you wish to study from these prayers?  No luck, you’ll be scratching your head like loopy. Surprisingly, even a Chinese language within the fashionable society received’t have the ability to perceive these scriptures and prayers too, as a result of they’re written in “poetic approach” to indicate off greater than to speak. Significantly, a Catholic prayer is way simpler to know in English for those who regarded round and evaluate them.

For our lineage, we don’t go by these “historic” technique of writing, as a result of they’re ineffective for the folks nowadays. Perhaps it’s good to have in historical past, however they’re impractical and never even going to assist the Tao to be identified higher. What I recommend everyone seems to be perceive what you’re doing, and there goes a approach you possibly can talk along with your god, in any language that you simply converse, and even within the grammar that you simply perceive.

When speaking to the gods, you solely have to deal with them as uppers, and know what respect means. Identical to you don’t speak to your dad by calling their identify instantly, like “Hey Jack” after which anticipate them to be “advantageous” with you. Simply think about you’re speaking to your boss at work, or your grandfather speaking to you and so forth. It is vitally straightforward proper? Simply speak correctly with the correct mindset, respect and advantage, it’s adequate. You don’t should be excellent too, similar to I by no means converse excellent in my life both. Generally you mentioned one thing and realized you mentioned it fallacious, so that you return and rephrase it and going backwards and forwards till the message is evident, that’s okay too. As you possibly can see on this put up, I’m writing in a tone like I’m actually simply talking to you in individual, easy, informal and simple to know, with no high-level vocabulary, and no fancy poetic crap. You are able to do the identical along with your prayers and speak to the gods similar to that as properly.

There may be at all times a construction by default, reminiscent of – you name somebody first, say your message after which finish with thanks or one thing like that. It’s straightforward to know proper?  Identical to the communication with the gods. You begin by a bow and calling their identify within the coronary heart, then you definately speak, then you definately bow to conclude and say you’re accomplished or perhaps add “please assist me on XYZ” or one thing to finish your dialog.

Each god has their character, power, and even “particular energy” too. Are you aware them? If not, then it is best to find out about them extra!  Ask on LINE or in school, my disciples!

Not but a disciple?  Ordain right now!
